Hello Im seth, just wanted to introduce myself to the forum, just purchased my first beetle a couple months ago, its a 200 1.8t 5 spd 103000 mi on the motor which came with paperwork from the dealership when it was rebuilt at 98,000 mi, full motor rebuild turbo rebuild clutch rebuild, the transmission was left untouched but i only paid 3,250 usd for the car. booked nfor almost 6 pretty stoked cause i already ran a flat 7 in the 1/8 and ive hit 130 in it and it was only pushing 5200-5300 rpm and still climbing (i got scared)

oh and i already had my first diy fix for herb (thats my beetles name) i had to figure out the reason for tight brakes and motor rev in idle and neutral, it took some digging but i found the vaccum to brake booster had just slipped off, no cracks luckily i guess bc my motor had been rebuilt, but there should def be a sticky on that bc i found multiple sites with users asking the same question as to what was going on
